Grey Stone is a young adult fantasy novel that brings us back to dark times. Where myths and legends wander the earth and equality is a utopia that humans cannot even fathom. Join the characters of Grey Stone on the journey of a lifetime to restore balance, and bring an end to the land of the great red sun.

 

In the land of the great red sun, dogs sing, wolves kill, humans serve, and wolf-shifters rule with magic and menace. Pietre is a human boy who has spent the last thirteen years afraid of the sunset, the Blødguard, and the wolf-shifting masters who rule his world. Wittendon is a werewolf prince who has spent the last nineteen years afraid of his father, his inability to do magic, and the upcoming tournament he’s sure to lose. But when Pietr

 

e finds an orphaned pup in the woods and Wittendon is forced to arrest the boy’s father soon after, both of them begin to realize that keeping the rules might be just as terrifying as breaking them. Now serf and master must learn to cut through their own prejudices and work together in order to turn their world before it turns on them. Grey Stone is a story of dogs who talk, wolves who kill, and a stone that-for better or worse-can change all that.

Cover Grey Lore

Grey Lore is a young adult paranormal retelling of the werewolf legends. It’s a fresh new look at the origins of the human-werewolf-dog relationship that has readers on the edge of their seats! The positive reviews just keep on coming in.

Despite the perks of living with her rich aunt, Ella’s new life in Napper, Indiana, is pretty much tragically boring. Until Ella starts hearing strange voices.
As rogue wolves begin to stalk the edges of town and a serial killer with a penchant for silver bullets draws closer, the city of Napper seems to wake up.
Ella, with her new friends, Sam and Sarah, might be able to find out what the strange occurrences mean. Except that they’re all being pulled in different directions by people who love them; and some who don’t.
Before they lose their way to the whispers they hear from the past or the call to a future they’re not sure they want to create, the friends will need to confront who they really are and figure out what’s hiding in the silence of their sleepy little town.

Make sure you get your copy today! You can share, gift, and buy.

Grey Stone

By Jean Knight Pace and Jacob Kennedy

TWO LOCAL AUTHORS COMBINE HIGH FANTASY WITH WOLF LORE TO CREATE A FRESH NEW YOUNG ADULT NOVEL

 

Before the rise of men, there were wolves…

What started off as stories local ER doctor Jacob Kennedy made up featuring his kids as main characters soon morphed into a project big enough that he asked local writer Jean Knight Pace if she’d be interested in co-authoring a book. She was excited to join up, adding to the story with her own ideas and style (and slipping her children into some of the character’s skins as well). Before they knew it, Kennedy and Pace had crafted what began as a few paragraphs of backstory into a book of high fantasy for tweens and teens. Instead of dragons, elves, and dwarves there were werewolf monarchs, talking dogs, and impoverished humans winding their way through a story that culminated in a Gladiator-style tournament—a tournament won (or lost, depending on how you look at it) by an unlikely hero and an unlikely traitor.

Join Jean and Jake as they launch/debut their new book, Grey Stone, at Barnes and Noble on August 20, 2016 at 3:30 pm, at the Evansville, IN, location. There will be giveaways, contests, a book signing, Q & A, and (naturally) candy and laughter.

Jean Knight Pace has had essays and short stories published in Puerto del Sol, The Lakeview Review, Crucible, and other literary magazines. Jacob Kennedy is an ER doctor who dreams werewolves and tournaments in his free time. Both of them live in Evansville with amazing spouses, boodles of kids, and furry pets who (as far as anyone knows) do not speak. You can find out more at jeanknightpace.com, jacobkennedybooks.com. Purchase Grey Stone from Amazon of Barnes and Noble.

Here is a blurb from the synopsis, “Growing up in a sleepy village untouched by distant wars and political conflicts, it was easy for Thia, Mina and Kiara to forget such horrors existed in the Five Corners. That is until the dead child is found; a child that bears the same strange birthmark that all three sisters possess. A Mark their mother had always told them was unique to the girls…”
